If you do not let the plaster to fully dry the will not stick to the fresh plaster and eventually it will start to flask off the plaster. Always let the plaster fully dry this will be a pinky colour and then use a mist coat (adding water to emulsion paint) so the paint seals the new plaster.

If you paint over wet plaster the paint will not adhere properly and flake off in due course. It is always best to allow the plaster to dry fully before starting decoration with a mist coat (a watered down emulsion). You can often tell when plaster is dry enough once it has all changed to a light uniformed colour with no dark patches. For wallpapering it is often best to allow 3 months before covering as the walls can not breath once covered.
